Where have you been? Dick Williams guide to The Trapps at the Gunks was published in 2004, and the guide to The Near Trapps was published in 2008. Since the publications of those two guides there were a few new 5.13 routes.
Reprinting the same crusty old descriptions and photos doesn't constitute an update. I'm glad I borrowed one and didn't have to spend money on that thing.
The wannabe-alpine training ground manifesto was cute though.
Just as an example of its usefulness-I was in Indian Creek few weeks ago at the Bridger Jacks shitter. An attractive lady showed up an obviously was having problems with the map next to the bathroom. She was looking for Selfish Wall (I think). She said it was not on the map. Her friends were waiting on her there and she had no idea where it was. I looked it up in the guidebook in the car. It was not in there either. As she walked back to her car dejected I remember I downloaded the Moab area a while back on my phone. I called her back over and there it was. I gave her directions and we made sweet love. Just kidding, she thanked me and she was off to enjoy her trip I suppose.
Being all the way out there without cell service, I would assume $10 would be worth it to her now.
Obviously there could have been better pre-planning, maybe her friends were d-bags and wanted her to wander aimlessly, I'm not looking to troll here. This is just a small way the app came in very handy.
I essentially used it all trip to find climbs around Moab, Canyonlands, etc. Doesn't replace guidebooks, but is another way to sort through tons of data when looking for certain types of climbs.
I would like my royalty check to come to my home since I have submitted pics, route beta and new areas free of charge! Now that i will have to pay to use this app i only think its fair. Thanks MP! I look forward to receiving payment.
